Vincent Visits

We had a rare treat in mid-July. My old friend Vincent Everts visited from The Netherlands, along with his wife Katie Lee and their young son Vince.

I've known Vincent since around 1989. He's one of the founders of Cyco Automation, an early AutoCAD third-party developer. I first met Vincent in Vancouver when he visited CADalyst magazine, and we've been friends ever since. We've skiied together at Whistler and my daughter Andrea visited Vincent when she toured Europe several years ago.

This was my first opportunity to return the hospitality, and we had a very nice, very domestic weekend. We walked the Interurban Trail here in Bellingham, taking a brief break on the Fairhaven Village Green.

It's been a while since we've had a toddler in the house.

We even encountered someone walking their pet iguana in Boulevard Park. You never know what you're going to find in Bellingham.

Later in the afternoon, Vincent, Katie Lee, and Vince visited the BSME model railroad club and got a chance to ride the 7.5-inch gauge outdoor railroad.
